Poem inspired by Jen’s The Flight.
We race into the wind
It twists my loose hair into raven knots.
My sciathán‘s hooves beat a rhythm
Against the packed earth.
Freedom is a heartbeat.
My mount’s warm and sturdy
Her muscles bunch under my thighs.
Heather and clover dance
Through the air.
Kyanite’s feathers unfurl.
We leap into the sky
I twine fingers through her ivory mane.
Mist cools my face in a caress
As we rise higher.
Our hearts beat as one.
Stay tuned for Julie’s No Rules Friday in two weeks.
